Course overview

Studying theology enables you to engage the 21st century world with a variety of Christian perspectives. It encourages you to think critically about Christian belief and the Bible, as well as considering local and global expressions of Christian faith. You will engage with the core subjects of philosophy and theology, biblical studies and ethics; but could also explore, if you choose, other faith traditions, or religion and culture, or violence and nationalism and other specialisms.
